More info / buy the CD: www.bfwrecordings.com/releases/BingSatellites/Rain/ Released as part of the very first Netlabel Day An album of abstract ambient music inspired by city life on my home town of Manchester, UK. Manchester is a busy, cosmopolitan university city. A city that has been the birthplace of so much science, music, art, political struggle and so much more besides, something that we proud Mancunians are not afraid to boast about. This is not a chillout album, although some will... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: bing satellites, rain, bfw, manchester, ambient, electronic, drone, experimental, soundscape,...

The new album of live ambient music performed by Bing Satellites during December 2013. The album is also available now on gatefold CD from bingsatellites.bigcartel.com The music is played into a long, slowly decaying loop. These loops are quite long (often around 90 seconds or more) and with very little rhythm to speak of, it is difficult to know precisely where I am in the loop, so I can add notes and sounds where I see fit, but can never know exactly what I am adding these notes to.... favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: bing satellites, bfw, ambient, live, improvisation, electronic, atmospheric, chill, drone,...

A collection of songs based around guitar and fretless bass. Blissful ambience finishing with the apocalyptic post rock of 'Where I Stand'.These songs were recorded over the last few years, using different techniques and equipment for each song.

Prolific ambient musician Bing Satellites returns with an album of slow, drifting ambient music. In his own words - Record everything! That is the rule I try to live by. The music on this album was recorded in one week in March 2012, a week when I was rather unwell and thought I had done very little other than take my cold medicine and watch TV in bed. I played a few soothing tunes on the piano (well, my facsimile of a piano) from time to time, but it came as quite a surprise to find that all... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: bing satellites, landscape and drift, bfw, ambient, flu, electronic, improvisation, live, chill,...

MagicVan returns to BFW with another highly original and entertaining collection of recordings. How to describe this?

Post blues or post-soul would decree the English critic Simon Reynolds if he had the opportunity to listen to the album that is by editing AguasTónicas soon or better yet, witness the band live. As it is unlikely that this (that Reynolds will listen) happen in the short term, it is necessary to say a few things: the music of AguasTónicas has almost nothing to 'post' and a lot of 'pre'. It says nothing of the end of an era, but speaks of a time to come, in which some things are similar to... Topics: Aguas tónicas, BFW, indie, rock, argentina
